A stunning female-led drama which follows Velya, as she tries to game the early ’90s Belarus immigration system to fulfil her dream to become a DJ in Chicago. Velya is desperate to fight for her freedom as she sinks further and further into early post-Soviet turmoil with every step of her adventure. The film was selected as the Belarusian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
